Do you need a fence for your yard? Maybe to keep the kids from getting out, or to make sure your pets don’t get away and wander into traffic. There are many different types of fences that can do this job: chain-link, wood, wrought iron, vinyl and more. Whether you’re looking for privacy or security we’ve got some tips on how to pick the best option for you!
What are the benefits of a fence for your yard
A fence can be used to keep your pets at home, keep unwanted animals out of the yard, keep children in the yard, and for protection. Fences are typically made of wood, chain-link, wrought iron, vinyl or even copper. When deciding which type of fence to purchase there are many factors that will affect your decision that need to be considered.
How high does the fence need to be
The higher the fence, the more it costs. Height is measured in either feet or inches. The cost is also dependent on whether you are installing a new fence or replacing an old one. New fences are generally taller because they are made of materials that are more durable and don’t need to be replaced as often.
Timing is also an important factor in how high your fence needs to be in order to fit in your yard and what type of fence would be best for you and your family’s needs.
Fence materials – wood, chain link, wrought iron & more.
Considering the type of material is important as well. You may want to check with your HOA before purchasing a new fence to ensure you comply with community standards. Wood fences are usually made of cedar, pine, fir, or redwood. These types of fence are environmentally friendly because they are fast-growing and won’t contribute to the deforestation problem that is experienced in many parts of the world. Wood will need to be treated with a sealant or paint that will keep it from breaking down over time. Chain-link fences are made from metal wires woven together to form a pattern. It can also be called mesh fence. It is durable but can look out of place next to other types of fencing like brick. Wrought iron fences are elegant and made by joining wrought (worked) iron bars into heavy duty panels. They come in many different styles including ornate scroll work or simple fencing with graceful
Fence types – privacy or security fences
There is a difference between privacy and security fences. Security fences will need to be taller in order to keep unwanted visitors out of your backyard. They also need to be made with materials that are more durable. This means they may cost more than a privacy fence made from vinyl or wood.
Cost and time considerations
If you are choosing to buy a new fence, the cost will depend on the materials. Wood fences are usually cheaper than chain-link or wrought iron because they cost less to install and maintain. They may not offer as much security as other types of fencing though.
All fences take an amount of time to be installed which can impact your decision if you’re in a hurry for something that is aesthetically pleasing. Chain-link, for example, can typically be installed quickly while made of wood may take a longer time.
